where to go on day trip in car?

i have gotten very good advice on here about where to go in and around Alicante on trams for our 4 night stay (6-10 august). we are going to rent a car for a day or two also. we have gone to Mojacar in Andalusia a couple of times on the A-7, but haven't had the chance to stop off anywhere. are there any places worth stopping off at on this route for a day trip? Or would anybody have any recommendations in heading off in a completely different direction e.g. northwards? thanks!

My suggestion would be Guadalest, which is approx 15 mins north of Benidorm, so probably about an hour or so driving. It's up in the hills, with a small selection of shops, restaurants and museums, as well as Algar Waterfalls which you can swim in. Very pretty. There's also a large lake which you can walk around. It is a popular tourist attraction so can get quite busy, so it's best to get there by 10/11am.

Hi,

My recommendations are Nature park of Penyon Ifach in Calpe, Vall de Laguart (to see Moorish steps, Cavall Vert and Cova Santa), Guadalest (Guadalest reservoir) and the drive Polop - Callosa - Bolulla - Tarbena - Parcent.
